In a recent poll, newlyweds listed “not spending more on a videographer” as their number one regret when it came to budgeting for their big day. And 35 percent of couples wish they’d hired a videographer.
Here at MTL Wedding Blog we have seen the standard of wedding videography improve rapidly over the last few years, and we are always on the lookout for fantastic local wedding videographers. So we were happy to discover the beautiful work of Love Lux Films. This is wedding videography with a very modern and creative twist. Beautiful story-telling without any of the old cliches.
We asked Tristan from Love Lux to tell us more about what they do, and how they make sure their couples receive a fil that will be priceless to their families for decades to come.
When did Love Lux Films first begin shooting weddings?
We have been running Love Lux for 4 years now, we are a young business but are growing really fast. Before Love Lux Films, I worked for a large wedding photo/video studio in Australia as a studio manager managing over 300 weddings a year, this is where I learnt what it takes to create outstanding work for clients. Maelle started her photography career as a sports and concert photographer. She also works in social media management and content marketing for major Canadian brands.
How would you describe your style?
We love to capture the moment in the most natural, and genuine way. We are not big fans of the classic, cheesy wedding film feel so we work with our couples to bring out their real selves and make that shine in their films. We also use film stocks on our edits to create a cinematic look, and we always like to keep the image looking warm and inviting, an overall happy vibe :).
What challenges do you usually face during a wedding day?
What can brides do to help you to capture their wedding day in the best possible way?
One of our clients baked a pavlova wedding cake the morning of the wedding day, in a log cabin, in the forest! Don’t worry it was all planned and she is an expert baker (she even hosts her own baking TV show – Flour Power, on the channel Gusto!).
What advice do you offer a wedding couple that can’t decide between photography and videography?
It is always a hard choice. If you have to pick only one then it’s important to weigh up what’s important to you as a couple. Photography as a medium can be printed and hung on your wall as well as shown digitally. Video, on the other hand, can only exist in the digital world but you can really bring the audience into the scene with powerful audio and music over moving image.
How early do brides need to think about booking their videographer?
You offer package deals. Will you share more about this?
We offer 2 base packages but they are totally customizable. Every wedding is unique so we want to shape our services to match that.
